And now, we Feast!

I swear the only thing we did this Labor Day weekend was eat. We spent the three days traveling to our next meal. Friday night started at El Bait Shop with drinks and Elvis Dip. I definitely think that El Bait Shop has our favorite patio downtown. After that, we made our way to Miyabi 9 for sushi.
Saturday started off with pastries at La Mie Bakery. Josh said that they have the BEST pecan roll he's ever had. Bold statement. I prefer to dine on their cheese danish but they had this prosciutto and asiago cheese filled croissant that we shared and it changed my whole outlook on pastries. It was like a classier version of Burger King's Croissanwich, a favorite dish of mine during high school study hall. Yum.

Saturday afternoon was Josh's homemade nachos (I really think we could start a farmer's market stand with these nachos). We watched the Hawks give everyone a heart attack by getting thisclose to losing the game to UNI. Yikes. If the rest of the season is going to go like this, I'm unsure that my little Lora heart can handle it. And I'm absolutely certain that Josh's heart can't.

Saturday night was dinner at Iron Wok, our favorite Chinese food place, with my family. They have the BEST sesame chicken hands down. Not too saucy, not overloaded with breading, perfect. The older generation of my family has an affinity for Chinese buffets so I don't think they were terribly impressed but I knew going into it that we weren't going to win that battle. Sigh.

Sunday and Monday was more of the same. Eat, drink, repeat.
